Signs of company


Americans have cars in the driveway, but in Myanmar signs of having others over to your home varies by season. Year-round, shoes piled up outside doors often means guests are inside (done to keep from tracking the dirtiness of outside streets inside), and during rainy season flocks of umbrellas congregate around entryways (often opened to encourage drying).

How do different cultures modify entryways (or the carried object itself) to fit seasonally changing carrying behaviors?
